Jigsaw

Saw: The eighth film in a long-running horror series, the modestly-budgeted Jigsaw (above) proved to be a financial success last fall, earning more than $100 million at the worldwide box office. Reportedly, Jigsaw writers Josh Stolberg and Peter Goldfinger (Piranha 3D, Sorority Row) are now developing the next installment. It's not known if it's a direct follow-up to any of the previous films or is, perhaps, a reboot. [Bloody Disgusting]
